the knitted tube lamp
Nowadays transportation and logistics define our modern way of living. We felt attracted to design something that meets those high requirements of sending and producing things.
KNITULA (The knitted tube lamp) is designed to use minimal space and costs on the way. It comes in an A4 envelope, including 9 struts, 2 rings and 1 knitted tube. Its middle struts can be easily clicked on two rings to make the lantern stiff. The textile can be simply pulled over the construction.
work in progress.
Knitula tubes were developed at Textielmuseum Tilburg (NL)
